Rotterdam panorama - Romeijn de Hooghe, Johannes de Vou, 1694/1778
1694. BEROEMD PANORAMA VAN ROTTERDAM "Rotterodamum", gravure gedrukt van 4 koperen platen vervaardigd door Romeijn de Hooghe naar tekeningen van Johannes de Vou. Voor het eerst uitgegeven in 1694. Om de inmiddels gegroeide stad volledig weer te geven, werden in 1778 beide buitenste bladen opnieuw gegraveerd. Ze werden verlengd waardoor ook de uitbreiding rond het Boerengat (rechts) en de Zalmhaven (links) er op staan. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd en met goud gehoogd. Afm. 25,5 x 231,5 cm, lijst 55,5 x 262,0 cm. Van links naar rechts zien we de Zalmhaven, de Wester Nieuwehoofdpoort en de Ooster Nieuwehoofdpoort die de toegang geven tot de Leuvehaven, de Boompjes met het VOC gebouw, de Sint-Laurenskerk en de mond van de Oudehaven, geflankeerd door de Wester- en de Ooster Oudehoofdpoort (beide poorten worden beschermd door een in de Maas uitstekend bastion, waarop kanonnen geplaatst zijn), de huizen aan de achterzijde van het Haringvliet, het bolwerk met stadstimmerhuis en de stadtimmerwerf rondom de Nieuwe Haven en Hoge Zeedijk. "Reeds van oudsher hebben de Rotterdammers prijs gesteld op het bezit van een afbeelding hunner stad aan den Maaskant en vooral in de 17e eeuw werd op uitnemende wijze aan dien wensch tegemoet gekomen. Vrij kort na elkander verschenen toen van de stad drie panorama's, die én door de artistieke bewerking én door hun royaal formaat de fraaiste van alle Rotterdamsche Maasgezichten genoemd mogen worden. Het zijn kapitale kopergravures, waarvan de eerste omstreeks 1640 bij Jacobus Allard verscheen, de tweede in 1665 door Jacob Quack werd uitgegeven en d … [Click Below for Full Description]

HOMANN, Johann Baptist.
1694. The map is in good, clean and tidy condition. The colouring is typical of the German style of colouring. The shading is quite pale / in pastel tones, and I suspect it may have faded over time. The bottom edge of the map has been trimmed quite closely to the engraving (but there is no loss). The rear of the map shows some sign of support / restoration, but on the whole, the map is in good clean condition, with a clear impression. . Copper engraving by Johan Baptist Homann, with contemporary hand colouring. A rare map of the land of plenty, fools paradise or Pays de Cocaigne. originally published in 1694. The map was printed three times, in 1694, around 1730 and around 1740. This is probably from the last edition, around 1740. Schlaraffenland was the Utopia of German legend. In the children's version of this, sausages grow on trees and tables set themselves. This cartographic version is a much darker version, with a "Kingdom of Extravagence", and "Empire of Fat Stomachs", "Tobacco Island" and the "Land of Gluttony". All of this is surrounded by the seas of Drunkeness and Lust. The cartouche has a scene of debauchery and carnal excess.

[VOU, Johannes de and Romeyn de HOOGHE].
The most spectacular of all Dutch city atlases, including new printings from the original plates (some with revisions and additions) of De Vou and De Hooghe's 1694 wall map with views and arms, and with 106 additional coats of arms of the members of the Rotterdam "vroedschap" (1694-1791) and one extra view, all coloured by the publisher with gouaches and gold. Also included are original gouache paintings of the arms of the pensionaries (1672-1788) and secretaries (1669-1788) of the city. The famous wall map is engraved by Romeyn de Hooghe, one of the greatest artists to come out of the late Dutch Golden Age, after measurements by Jan de Vou. It includes a magnificent large panoramic view of the city as seen from the Meuse, with numerous ships in the foreground. That view was expanded in 1773: the plate at the left end was replaced with a broader one, and an extension plate was added to the right end, both reflecting the expansion of the city since 1694.With a small label on paste-down noting the atlas was on display at the Lakenhal Leiden, June 1950 and then in the possession of the Rotterdam bank director Cornelis Hendrik Muntz. (b. 1903). A few restorations to the backing paper, mostly in the folds, but also including a larger restored tear, but none affecting the actual illustrations. A magnificent showpiece for any collection related to Rotterdam or indeed for city atlases, maps or views in general.l Ratsma, Plattegronden van Rotterdam, pp. 55-58 & note 4 to map 9 on p. 69; Ratsma, Prospecten van Rotterdam 86; cf.

[PAINTING]. CERF, J. de.
Oval miniature portrait painting of the acclaimed French Enlightenment author Voltaire (1694-1778), showing him in one of his favourite poses: sitting with a book in his hand in front of a bookcase. The portrait has a dated signature on the back "J. de Cerf A[nn]o 1687", seven years before Voltaire was born! A modern note on the back suggests that the artist is the obscure painter Louis Le Cerf, who worked in Grenoble around 1735. The portrait itself is in very good condition, but the frame has lost most of its gilding.

NINE YEARS WAR. Great Britain. Parliament.
London: Charles Bill and the Executrix of Thomas Newcomb, 1694. Folio (11.5 inches). 5 & 6 William & Mary, Chapter 21. General title leaf + pages 383-415. Woodcut Royal coat of arms, headband, and decorative initial. Text in Black Letter. Neatly extracted from a bound volume and expertly mended. This was the first Stamp Act introduced in Great Britain and was designed to help raise money for the war against France through stamp duties. The new stamp duties were essentially taxes on documents accomplished on vellum, parchment, and paper, with payment of the tax being indicated by a stamp applied to document. The presence of the tax stamp validated the document and gave it official legal status. Legal documents that lacked the tax stamp were not valid and could attract a fine of up to five hundred pounds. The tax ranged from one penny to several shillings on a variety of legal documents, including insurance policies, court documents, land grants, letters of probate, university degrees, contracts, and other administrative documents. Blank paper could be submitted to the tax office for tax stamps to be applied and the prescribed duty amount paid, or pre-stamped paper could be purchased for use. Anyone caught counterfeiting tax stamps faced the death penalty. Tax stamps proved to be an effective way to raise money, and continued to be used into the future. Similar tax stamps were devised for use in America after the Seven Years War to raise money for British troops stationed in the colony for protection from Native attacks (as detailed in the infamous Stamp Act, 1765), but were … [Click Below for Full Description]

NINE YEARS WAR. Great Britain. Parliament.
London: Charles Bill and the Executrix of Thomas Newcomb, 1694. Folio (12.25 inches). 5 & 6 William & Mary, Chapter 20. General title leaf + pages 323-378. Woodcut Royal coat of arms, headband, and decorative initial. Text in Black Letter. Neatly extracted from a bound volume and expertly mended. A wide-margined copy. Contemporary marginal notes in sepia ink throughout, somewhat faded but generally decipherable. Paper slightly rumpled and affected by moisture mainly along outer blank margin (slightly yellowed). Condition noted, and sold as is. The crushing defeat of the Royal Navy at the Battle of Beachy Head in 1690 at the hands of the French prompted England to focus on rebuilding itself as a global naval power, but being unable to borrow money due to its weak credit rating, the country was at a crossroads. William Paterson (1658-1719), a Scottish merchant, recognized the opportunity to lend the government money, and joined with a number of London merchants to propose a bank of credit based on the model used by the Bank of Saint George in Genoa, Italy. The group raised £1,200,000 of the £1,500,000 needed by the government in return for incorporation and exclusive banking privileges. The Bank of England was established on July 27, 1694 by a Royal Charter granted in pursuance of this omnibus Act (see Section 19 of the Act for the actual statement of incorporation, together with further rules and operational parameters outlined on pages 343-372), whereby the exclusive privilege to incorporate as The Governor and Company of the Bank of England was awarded to William Paterson … [Click Below for Full Description]

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MAP OF THE MEDITERRANEAN?Carte Nouvelle de la Mer Mediterranee ou sont Exactement Remarques Tous les Ports, Golfes, Rochers, Bancs de Sable &c.? Copper engraving on 3 conjoined sheets made by Romeijn de Hooghe and publihed with privilege by Pieter Mortier of Amsterdam in 1694. 2nd state of 4. Coloured by a later hand. Size: 58,5 x 139 cm.Rare early edition of de Hooghe?s monumental chart of the Mediterranean Sea with 38 inset maps and views of the major ports and harbours. It includes numerous galleons and galleys, with allegorical figures and sea monsters embellishing the insets. The chart appeared in a special section of Pieter Mortier?s Neptune Fran?ois, separately titled Cartes Marines a l?Usage des Arm?es du Roy de la Grande Bretagne. The nine charts in this section, all engraved by De Hooghe himself, are described by Koeman as the ?most spectacular type of maritime cartography ever produced in seventeenth century Amsterdam?. The chart of the Mediterranean is the largest and most intricately decorated of the nine.The atlas is dedicated to William III (stadholder of the Netherlands and, after the Glorious Revolution of 1688, also king on the British throne). The map of the Mediterranean mentions a certain Hiob de Wildt and shows his family?s coat of arms . Dr. Hiob de Wildt (1637-1704) was the first secretary of the Admiralty in Amsterdam, the largest and most powerful of the five Dutch admiralties at the time of the Dutch Republic.

GALLAND, Antoine
La Haye: Louis & Henry Van Dole, 1694. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Antoine Galland was a 17th-century French orientalist who is best known for his translation of 'Arabian Nights'. However, his push to expand Europe's appreciation for the orient extended beyond 'One Thousand and One Nights' to his own collection of Persian, Arab, and Turkish maxims entitled 'Les Paroles Remarquables'. 'The Remarkable Words and Maxims of Orientals' was first published in 1694 and saw immediate and widespread success, much in part to it being shorter than similar works of maxims. (Dew, p.186). This book is filled with clever sayings, witty jokes, and short anecdotes that, as Galland claims, come from 'the Orientals'. This first edition was an important piece in the development of Orientalism in France and makes mention of various French authors and poets, George Wheler's voyages, Amelot de la Houssaye's travel notes, and even a political testament from Cardinal Richelieu.

(11), xii, (20), 467, 271, (2), pp. Additional endpapers added. Title page in red and black. The pages appear un-trimmed and have wide and clean margins. No additional marginal notations. One page, 204 in the first section, has a few lines underlined in pencil. Contains 6 full page engraved portrait plates. The frontispiece is an image of Cranmer executed by Holbein. The remaining 5 portraits are those of Peter Martyr Vermilius, John A'Lasco, Martin Bucer, Hugh Latimer, and Philip Melancthon. One page in the Appendix section is mis-numbered with page 190 printed as 192. There are some pencil notations on the last original blank page referencing a few passages of the book of apparent interest to this scholar. Previous owner book-plate present, that of The Very Reverend John Lynch (Dean of Canterbury) 1697-1760. Rev. Lynch led a most distinguished life, attaining positions including Royal Chaplain to the King, Dean of Canterbury and Archdeacon of Canterbury. A very compelling provenance indeed. Strype was a very prolific writer with well over a dozen works published. This is his third work, published when he was 46. He lived to be 95. This volume is a remarkably clean, bright and solid example. A lovely book in all respects and an important work of 16th century English historical scholarship.

Hooghe-- Romeijn de
FAMOUS WALL MAP OF ROTTERDAMEtching with engraving, printed on 6 sheets, made by Johannes de Vou and Romeijn de Hooghe in 1694. Coloured by a later hand. Size (print): 120 x 140 cm. (This is only the plan of Rotterdam without the profile, views of the city or coats of arms of mayors. If you are interested in the profile, we have it here.)Of all maps of Rotterdam, this plan by De Vou and De Hooghe is the best known and most spectacular.At the end of the 17th century Amsterdam, The Hague, Leiden, Delft and Haarlem already had respectable wall maps and Rotterdam did not want to stay behind.When making the map the city was measured, drawn and engraved by Johannes de Vou. Romeijn de Hooghe was responsible for the rich decoration. De Hooghe was a famous artist in his day and was awarded more than fl. 2.000 for his work, surveyor De Vou received less than fl. 100.When the map was finished the members of the town council were given a coloured and framed copy. Until? 1711 we can trace expenditures for colouring of copies of the map. Nothing can be found that the map was ever sold, even if this was the intention in 1690. Of the 600 copies printed, a large number still remained in 1711.The municipality had ?atlases? made in 1744 from the loose sheets of maps still available. Also these atlases were given to city council members and higher city officers. According to a decree of 1777, two atlases needed to remain at hand at all time, probably to be available for official gifts.The very large scale of the map, the ?bird?s eye perspective? of the urban development inside and outside of t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Perrault Charles
Moetjens, 1694. Recueil de Pièces curieuses tant en prose qu'en vers. Tome 1 (parties 1 à 6). 4 feuillets ; 698 pages ; 4 feuillets (table générale pour ce premier tome). Hauteur des feuillets : 136mm. Le recueil lorsqu'il est complet se compose d'en tout 5 tomes comprenant chacun 6 parties ou livraisons. Celui-ci est connu pour donner les trois contes en vers de Perrault : « Les Souhaits ridicules » et « Peau d'Asne » font partie de la première livraison, parue en janvier 1694 et « Griselidis » se trouve dans la troisième (mars). Le dernier tome (que nous ne proposons pas) contient les huit contes en prose. RBH ne signale qu'un exemplaire complet des cinq (Alde, vente du 12 décembre 2007 ; lot 119) mais les deux derniers volumes étaient en reliure pastiche, les titres généraux et intermédiaires en fac-similés. La très grande rareté des ensembles complets s'explique sans doute par l'essoufflement de cette publication dont les livraisons finirent par s'étaler largement dans le temps au lieu de garder le rythme de départ de 12 par an (le dernier tome est paru sur la période 1696-1701 ; on peut imaginer que les tirages furent moins importants sur la fin. Pour cette question des difficultés rencontrées par cette publication, voir l'article d'Emile Henriot: "La véritable originale des contes de Perrault", lisible en ligne). « Les Souhaits ridicules » et « Griselidis » étaient parus respectivement en 1693 (dans le Mercure galant) et 1691 (deux éditions).

This is the very rare last (11th?) edition, the first edition was printed in Dordrecht in 1609. We have located only two copies of the present edition in libraries, both in Amsterdam (VU & UB). The complier, physician Carolus Battus (or Baten or Batin), (1540-1617), was a Flemish refugee who from 1588 to 1601 was city physician in Dordrecht. He wrote three major works, (besides some smalle ones), that went through numerous editions in the seventeenth century Netherlands: a handbook for surgery, a handbook for medicine and the present book of secrets. As mentioned on the title-page, Battus compiled his work from various Latin, French, German and Dutch sources, mentioning the author at the end of each "secret". The book opens with secrets concerning fire, air, water and earth: how to make a candle that can't be blown out and how to heat water without fire.

FLEETWOOD, William.
London: printed by Tho. Hodgkin, and are to be sold by J. Whitlock, 1694. Small quarto (202 x 164 mm). Disbound pamphlet, earlier sew-holes visible in margin. Half-title/imprimatur leaf present, lightly soiled and creased. Very minor paper faults at peripheries of a few pages. A very good copy. One of two editions of that year, without established priority. Fleetwood (1656-1723), then chaplain to William and Mary and later Bishop of Ely, touched on contemporary economic issues in many of his sermons, here arguing that the clipping of the coinage was a moral evil, alongside a civic crime, and was proscribed by scripture. The publication was part of the administration's campaign against clipping - the court invited Fleetwood to preach the sermon to the mayor and aldermen of London, and it was published two days later under the imprimatur of the Bishop of London (Kleer, p. 60). It is probable that few coin clippers were deterred by the moralizing (given that they were already facing the death penalty if caught), but it is still a notable publication, later reprinted in Fleetwood's collected works. There were two editions (distinguished by the pagination), and this edition is also split into two variants distinguished by minor typographic changes. Only four copies are located by ESTC of this variant (two in Christ Church Oxford, and one in Eton and the Victoria and Albert Museum), although it is probable that other examples have been identified as the other variant.

MOLIÈRE (Jean-Baptiste POQUELIN).
Le médecin malgré-luy.Brussels, George de Backer, 1694. 12mo. With an engraved frontispiece by Jacobus Harrewijn. Modern boards. 52 pp. From the very rare first Belgian edition of Molière's plays, printed by Georges de Backer in Brussels in 1694, with the individual plays also published separately. Each play has its own title-page with the device and its own series of quire signatures. Each play also has a different new frontispiece engraved by Jacobus Harrewijn, after the illustrations by Pierre Brissart in the Paris edition of 1682. Le médecin malgré-luy (The doctor in spite of himself) was first performed in 1666 and published in 1667. In the story a rich man sends two servants to find a medical doctor for his daughter who has suddenly become mute. The wife of the woodcutter Sganarelle tells them he is a doctor to take revenge on him for his drinking. The frontispiece depicts the scene where the servants, thinking he is refusing to help them, threaten to beat him. Sganarelle just points at his axe with a baffled look on his face.Binding very lightly worn at the extremities. Frontispiece with a minor spot; a very good copy.

Set in roman, italic and Arabic types with incidental fraktur, Greek and Hebrew. Contemporary vellum. [88], "560" [= 562], [10] pp. First and only edition of Hinckelmann's Arabic text of the Qur'an, the second edition of the Arabic Qur'an, the first actually available to readers and the only convenient edition before 1834, with a 36-page Latin introduction by the editor making extensive reference to the earlier literature. The first complete Arabic edition of the Qur'an was printed at Venice ca. 1537/38, intended for distribution in the Middle East, but the entire edition was thought to have been destroyed until one copy turned up in the 1980s. Hinckelmann's edition was therefore the first edition available to European scholars, missionaries or Islamic readers. It was followed by Ludovico Marracci's Arabic and Latin edition published at Padua in 1698, whose two folio volumes and extensive (anti-Islamic) commentary made it both expensive and inconvenient to use. The editions published at St Petersburg (from 1789) and Kazan (from 1803) for the use of Islamic groups in the Russian Empire were almost unknown in Europe, so the present edition remained the primary source for European knowledge of the Qur'an for 140 years, until Flügel's 1834 Leipzig edition.

[80], 560 pp., [10], woodcut Arabic half-title, Latin title printed in red & black, "Sententia Muhammedis." leaf bound after Latin title, but lacking the second Arabic half-title (as usual), preface in Latin, text in vocalised Arabic, contemporary half vellum with marbled boards, all edges red, index, cover rubbed, soiled and worn round edges, few contemporary Latin annotations in margins with some interlinear annotations, Monastic library stamp on last leaf and labels on back endpaper, contemporary Latin note on front endpaper, otherwise a good copy, Ex Officina Schultzio-Schilleriana, [G. Schultz & B. Schiller]. The Hamburg Koran was long believed to be the first edition printed, the preliminary text being dated 10 May 1694. However, there exists a unique surviving copy of a printing prepared by Alexander Paganini at Venice in 1537-1538, which was discovered in Venice in 1987. Teseo Ambrogio degli Albonesi's `Introductio in chaldaicam linguam' (Pavia 1593), states that the only trace of the existence of the Koran which was printed by Father Alexander Paganini of Brescia at the end of the fifteenth or at the beginning of the sixteenth century is a record of the destruction of the printing, but that no copy of the edition was then known to have survived. The unique survivor was Ambrogio's own copy. The Hamburg Koran therefore remains as the first obtainable printed edition. Dr Abraham Hinckelmann (1652-1695), a German Protestant theologian, was an Islamologist who was one of the first to print a complete Qur'an in Hamburg. … [Click Below for Full Description]
